It’s happening–the flowers are coming, and it all starts with a spike. First it peaks out from the leaf margin, then it grows, and you get to count actual buds. Finally, they open! The room is filled with the intoxicating scent of vanilla and citrus, and the plant, already beautiful, is further decorated by those delicate and spectacular flowers. I love spring.
